Penalty has to decide the encounter and Alvaro Morata missed Spain’s crucial kick, as Italy triumph to reach the final.
After Alvaro Morata’s penalty was saved, Jorginho strolled up to score and set up a final with either England or Denmark in London on Sunday.
Morata’s penalty miss was the third he had failed to score in Euro 2020.
After a goalless first half, Federico Chiesa gave Italy the lead on 60 minutes.
He pounced on a loose ball inside the box and beats the goalkeeper with a shot inside the right post.
